Personal profile


Nathan is currently Associate Head of the School of Arts and Communications and the Director of the Leeds Centre for Victorian Studies.

Research interests

My main research focus is within the broad field of the intellectual culture of the Victorian period. I am particularly interested in the inter-connections between narrative, image, and dramatic effect - what we now call interdisciplinary work, but the Victorians saw as the basic nature of artwork. These inter-connections seem to have enabled them to deal with complex issues, such as the persistence of the past into the present (and vice versa) and the persistence of the social into the self (and vice versa).

I am also interested in British art and poetry of the 1970s, which shares what I see as the Victorian interest in creative interdisciplinarity. I have recently researched the work of Bill Griffiths, Allen Fisher, and Iain Sinclair – all members of the British Poetry Revival.

PhD supervision

I have co-supervised a PhD on Victorian history and memory (successfully completed within 3 years) and am currently co-supervising PhDs on contemporary Victorianism and Virginia Woolf's.

Teaching and Administration

My teaching was in Victorian literature with other modules in the relation of creative writing to war experiences and also in the history of ideas.
